Last week we began work on a new assignment.
Repetition with Variation
Students were asked to create a series of 9 miniature drawings of an object. The object was their choice.
The Process of the project is to investigate the object from a series of sides, angles and distances. The drawing will be a compilation of 9 separate images of that one object. It will be drawn on a 11” x 11” piece of paper that is evenly separated into 9 equal squares. The goal is to draw the object by designating no more than 5% of the entire piece with white. (Reserve the white for the brightest, brightest, brightest highlights.) Students will be asked to push the darkest-darks so their object and lights pop out. They also will need to vary line weight and consider the balance of the piece as a whole.
On Monday, I will be demonstrating how to use the different drawing pencils and how they can change the way you see a drawing.
